It is evident for any cricketer to be sad when they get ousted from the particular format of the game. Much to the same, Shikhar Dhawan also felt sorry for getting knocked out from the Test format for his poor performances in South Africa and England. However, the best part of Shikhar Dhawan is moving on and concentrating on other things.

Meanwhile, Shikhar Dhawan failed to utilise his starts during the series against England. In most of the cases, he got decent starts but was unable to convert into a big tally, which saw him being on the wrong side of the things.

Want to score a lot of runs in the 2019 World Cup – Shikhar Dhawan

Speaking of the same, Shikhar quoted he is currently in a good frame of mind to make things happen for his side. Further, the southpaw added he believes in the process to come good on a regular basis.

Furthermore, he went on to speak on scoring runs in the 2019 World Cup. The two champion trophies in England have gone well for Dhawan, as far as individual performance is concerned. He was the leading run-scorer in the last couple of editions in England.

“Yes, I was a bit sad but I have moved on and I am in a good frame of mind. I am in a happy positive mood. I am enjoying my game. I have got a bit off time and I am going to enjoy my training and get myself, fitter. I am happy and once I am happy things go well for me,” Dhawan told ESPNCricinfo.

“I am going to give my best. I am a big believer in process and once I get it right, other things will follow on its own. Of course, we would like to bring the World Cup back home. I have done well in both Champions Trophies in England and with my experience, I hope to score a lot of runs in World Cup and give good starts and sail through so that we can get the Cup back,” Dhawan stated.

India has got a good chance to win this time in Australia – Shikhar Dhawan

Further, the flamboyant cricketer quoted team India has got a good chance to win the series this time in Australia. However, he asked the boys to do well in all sections of the game, importantly, in catching.

“I think we have got a very good chance to win the series here. We have to play good complete cricket in all three departments whether it’s batting, bowling or fielding and also catching. We have to be consistent and then we will have a good chance of beating Australia,” Dhawan inferred.

All in all, it is pleasing to hear from Dhawan that he is in a positive mindset to knock it for India in the limited-over format. He has been brilliant in the T20Is, where he ended up receiving the man of the series award of late.
